  1. Going to get a Honda Civic 2007, any known problems i should look out for and change? How much will the estimated costs be? Thank you!
  2. Hello, anyone got any experience in swopping out their stock HU of civic turbo for like Pioneer ones? Specifically, Pioneer 9150. Tks!
  3. Hi all, Just would like to share my experiences during the renewal of my Honda Civic. History: My car is the Honda Civic 1.6AT, originally registered in 16 Apr 2009. I bought the car from a Direct seller through sgcarmart at 16.5k (min PARF is 12.5k) in Nov 2018, means I had approximate 6 months to drive the car to inspect its status before making decision to renew the COE or not. Road tax was paid until 15 Apr 2019, so it is another convenient point for me. The mileage of the car when I took over was 87000 km (genuine mileage) and I was the 4th owner of the car. The purchasing was pretty smooth, I paid full amount in cash and we completed the ownership transfer at LTA on the same day. STA evaluation: The Direct seller on his good will sent the car to STA for evaluation and bear the cost for it. The STA report showed there are only a few minor points with the car, inclusive the worn out tires, worn lower arm-buish, non-retractable left-side mirror and minor seepage of oil. As all of those issues are wear and tears items, I decided to move on and took the car. Driving experience and maitenance: Handling of the car is good, during the 6 months driving it never gave me any problems. Quite happy with my car, so in March I sent my car for regular servicing and also for comprehensive checking at a workshop to intensive evaluate the car for COE renewal. All wear and tears part needed to be changed include 4 tires (Michelin Primacy 4), lower arm buishes and fix the non-retractable mirror only (over-all cost me less than 1k). The oil seepage was not detected at this servicing time and the mechanics told me they would check it at next time servicing. After that my car was ready for COE renewal. COE renewal: I bought the car in Nov 2018, when the PQP for COE reneal was $29760. The PQP was steadily decrease in the months after that and it reached the lowest $25525 in March, before slight increase in Apr. When I logged in the LTA onemotoring portal, I got the option to choose Mar or Apr PQP. If I chose Mar PQP, then my new COE wil be from 1st Apr 2019 to 31rd Mar 2029. If I chose Apr PQP, then my new COE will be from 16th Apr 2019 to 15th Apr 2029. Due to only 15 days is forfeited, I have decided to renew the 10 years COE using March PQP. The payment is also pretty convenient via online bank-payment. I also realized that the PARF rebate is still valid until 15 Apr 2019 even though I have renewed the COE, means I can still de-register the car and get back that min PARF. Road tax renewal: Now there is a small problem for me. My insurance with AXA is till 20 Nov 2019, so I only got an option to renew the road tax for 6 month from 16th Apr 2019 to 15th Oct 2019 (at $407). I think I will need to discuss with the insurance company to extend my current contract till 15th Apr 2020 so I can align the road tax with the insurance, but surely there is a mismatch in the expiry dates for road tax and the new COE. Thinking: I am now thinking whether should I repaint the whole car or not. The color of my car is brown and there are quite a number of small scratches there, but it is not clearly visible. I asked around and the cost is likely to be in 1-1.5k, so still thinking about it. And since the headlights are quite yellowish (although tried to polish and restore but still a bit foggy), I have also bought a pair of headlights at price of $119 each. Will install this brand new headlights after I repaint the car.
  4. Looks like the hot Hatch category getting interesting next Year You Have the Renault RS which is zero to 100 in about 5.7 to 6 sec New engine. Not as ricey as the Civic and tamer. Functional Diffuser. 4 Wheel Steering, which may not be everyone's liking. Hopefully, they nail it this time round. Its downsize to 1.8T instead of 2.0 T so I suspect no replacement for displacement means the 150 to 200 kmh range will be slower on the straight. Comes stock at 280 bhp while GTi is 235 bhp. vs Civic 308 bhp. Let see what kind of prices. If the number falls in the 145 to 155 K range, probably have very good takeup rate.
  5. Hi all, i am planning to get a honda civic 2nd hand. however there are this term call FD1 and FD2. May i know what is the difference between the 2 of them? Any bros can advice?

    Possible new variant for Honda Civic Type R

    Is Honda readying the facelifted Honda Civic Type R with new parts? Or could this be a lightweight special from the Japanese company? As reported by Carscoops, two prototype Civic Type Rs has been spotted being pushed to its limits on Nurburgring. A white coloured unit sporting a different bumper all round has been spotted before, signaling a forthcoming facelift and a yellow one shown here that is more interesting. Featuring a fully camouflaged roof and camouflaged air intake in the bonnet, these are signs that could point to Honda preparing for a lightweight variant of its hot hatch. It is also known that Honda is willing to add more variants to the civic if there is a demand for it. As of now, it is anyone's guess on what those camouflaged photos of the Civic Type R means but Honda fans would not need to wait too long as Honda is expected to introduce the updated Civic Type R late this year.

  8. 2018 Honda Civic Type R Black EditionThe world has already witnessed the prototype model of 2018 Honda Civic Type R Black Edition as the company unveiled it in Paris at the 2016 Mondial de L’Automobile. This Black Edition model is targeted to bring an enhanced driving spirit and performance with an improved drivetrain. The overall styling of Honda Type R showcases 2 major features – racing performance and modern signature design language. The design of current generation model is a show stopper as it is unique to a great extent. The upcoming 2018 Honda Civic Type R Black Edition will be improved more on aerodynamics for achieving greater stability at higher speeds. This will not just help in bringing out an improved performance but will benefit fuel efficiency as well. The existing model has an aggressive stance as with wide wheel arches. This exterior styling including several others is to be retained in 2018 model. The interior cabin is shout out racing spirit which is characterized by sporty seats and steering wheel. The steering wheel also has controls to the intelligent Multi-Info Display (i-MID). Apart from having a blistering performance, the Black Edition is also likely to get an array of top tech features. Some of the tech features that are present in the current model include: Dual Stage Driver i-SRS Airbag. City-Brake Active System. Brake Assist. Electronic Brakeforce Distribution. Vehicle Stability Assist. Emergency Locking Retractor. 2018 Honda Civic Type R Black Edition – Engine and Performance:The 2018 Honda Civic Type R Black Edition might borrow the same 2.0 liter 4 cylinder turbocharged engine with a single-scroll turbocharger, a direct fuel injection and Honda’s popular VTEC valve train system. Although not confirmed, this engine is likely to be tuned for producing 295 lb-ft of torque at 2,500 RPM and 306 HP at 6,500 RPM. Don’t expect the new Civic Type R to come with an automatic transmission anytime soon as the same 6-speed manual transmission system will be used. If the company plans on adding more power, the output figures might reach and surpass 340 HP. With the update and refinement in the engine, the Type R Black Edition is going to the segment-leading performance. This new model will be able to take a sprint from 0 to 62 mph in less than 6 seconds. The top speed is 167 mph. The fuel economy is 26 mpg in the city, 32 mpg on highways and 30 mpg on a combined basis. http://www.hondacarmodels.com/2018-honda-civic-type-r-black-edition/
  9. Hi there, 1. I'm wondering whether I could upgrade my default 15" rims and tyres to 16" for my 04 Civic. There is no mention of the car compatibility with 16" except 15" and 14" in the owner manual . 2. How much should I budget for a set of 4 rims and tyres? Being new to changing rims, what should I look for when I shop for them? Which are the mainstream brands from Japan, europe and america? 3. Would 16" provides better road holding and stability at the expense of fuel economy and noises? Kindly advise and Thank you very much. Regards,
  10. Hi All, Any Civic drivers facing the same issue with water droplets in the head / back lights after rain or wash? Is it normal? My paint protection guys told me this is a defect for a new car, suspected sealant has not been done properly. But the Honda agent say it is normal

  12. Upon reaching adulthood, you're faced with two choices. You can either take your chances with our public transport network to get to work or spend half of whatever amount of money you have left to your name to buy a car.

    Any recommended tyre shop

    Hi guys, Anyone knows or can recommend a tyre shop here in SG that offer good price and service? I planned to do it in JB but when I read in the forum, some of them said that the price not much different or even more expensive compared to SG perhaps due to tax, but alignment is cheaper in JB. Well I am looking for 224/45/17 for my car. Please share if you guys knows any shops. Thanks in advance
  15. Fluids Fuel pump assembly removed completely Original fuel filter P/N. Comparison between new brake fluid and one that is 3 years old Breakdown of costs: Self Supplied Engine Oil CLTR 5W40 - $29.90 Oil Filter - $6.00 Brake Fluid (1L) - $7.35 Fuel Strainer - $39.90 Red Line MTL (2 quarts) - $46.00 From Riverview Labour - $100.00 Surcharge for Self Supplied items - $30.00 Total: $259.15 Time taken was approx. 3 hours. [/color] Comments: Could save more if I didn't change the manual transmission fluid. Changed it because KM used a wrong spec for it when they changed mine at 20k (wth they do that, I do not know.) Did not change coolant as well, which costs $20 for 4L at Riverview. During the servicing the mechanic, Ah Chin, went through with me the parts that he replaced and in some instances explaining in detail, especially the part on the fuel strainer. Upon re-assembly of the fuel pump back into the rear, a pressure gauge was used to test for the presence of any leakage (if there was, the fuel pump assembly was not tightened properly and cranking would take a longer time, or even be not possible.) Brake pads were also not required to be changed (still using day one originals) OEM Nissin ones cost $50.40, which I brought along just in case. After completion of servicing, the boss, Vincent took the car together with me for a drive to check for any anomalies. Finally, after everything was done, a car wash, including the engine bay, which left the insides spick and span.
  16. Hi there, My honda civic wiper has been there for 2 yrs + since first collected. Is there any recommeded wipers for me to change? price? easy to change? How do I know if wipers need to be changed? Mine creates noise when moving across the windscreen.

Kam xia lu ! what have fellow MCF seen of late/ recently duped items a) Sofa set, old furnitures b)

    10 most popular used car posts in November

    Looking for a used car and have no idea which one's cool to get? Or want to know how you can make your car more visible in the sea of used cars on sale? Here's a recap of our 10 most popular used cars posted in November. While some of them are sold, there are still cars out there for sale! Do note that the cars shown here are not ranked in order of popularity. 2009 Honda Civic Mugen RR One of the only two units in town and only 300 units in the world. There are probably more Paganis in Singapore... Only true Honda fans will want one. 1993 Mazda RX-7 Efini One of Japan's all-time greats. Likely to have less than 10 units in Singapore. This particular unit has been spot welded to increase body rigidity. 2007 Mitsubishi Evolution 10 GSR 60 grand worth of parts spent on this blue chrome-wrapped Evo X. Not for those who want to be discreet. 2012 BMW M Series M3 Sedan Here's a good example of how we would do up a V8 M3. A good tune with an Akrapovic Exhaust will definitely make the car a better drive. 2017 Ford Focus RS 2.5M One of the best hot hatches on sale. Enough said. 2009 BMW 1 Series 135i Coupe The mod list on this 500bhp 135i Coupe is pretty extensive. You could say whatever could have been upgraded, had been upgraded. Should be quite a beast to pilot. 1998 Subaru Impreza WRX 2.0M This is a very rare WRC 555 special edition WRX according to the ad. Engine has also been strengthened for a power upgrade. 2008 Mitsubishi Evolution 10 GSR Street-tuned Evo X for those that want a good balance of practicality and driving fun. 2006 Lexus IS250 Luxury For those into the stance culture, this is the perfect car for you. Comes with quite a bit of other mods, too, apart from the air suspension. 2008 Nissan GT-R 3.8A Have a need for speed? With 700bhp, you should have more than enough power for use in Singapore.

If you are scrapping your civic FD, I would like to swap the headlight with you, provided yours is in good condition. I would pay for workshop labour and a small token of appreciation. Kindly contact me if you are keen.

    Insurance for UK Civic Type-R

    Any bros here driving the Civic Type-R? Just wanted to find out how much the insurance will cost. I am currently entitled to 30% NCD. The car looks tempting with a price tag of $90K now. I suppose with some bargain, one ought to be able to get at $80K+? Thanks.
